Another Word to the Wise

With the purchase of my new cell phone comes a new service contract with Cingular. I purchased it online, and selected the option to "port" over my existing number to my new carrier.

Great, right? Well, yes, minus this weekend and next few days while I wait for my phone to be delivered. I didn't realize they would port my number instantly. So that means when I tried to use my phone Friday night it told me I wasn't an authorized Sprint subscriber. And when people have tried to call me, they get a "voicemail not configured yet" message.

So my words of advice: if you're going to switch over cell phone carriers and keep your same number, buy your new phone from the store.

But perhaps what is more sad is how disconnected I feel. What if someone wanted to call me? What if someone wanted to play soccer? What if someone was throwing a party in my honor and I couldn't be reached to make it? I just know all of my fans out there are having a nervous breakdown because they can't reach me. Right? Anyone? Buehler?

I can't say "nervous breakdown," but I definitely missed talking to you this weekend! :)

Does this mean you have finally joined the world of text messaging?

You are correct. I will now be able to find you in a noisy crowd.

it sounds like we are on the same path with phones... I am waiting for mine, but luckily, stayed with sprint, so they haven't ported over my number yet...

and I'm also thinking about getting into text messaging, but this *new* technology confuses me... i dont like technology... or being confused
